About Henry

Proprietor of the wine room, Henry Rymill, has over 20 years experience in the wine trade and the Australian wine industry, which includes working in vineyards, wineries, stints with Oddbins, the Australian Wine Bureau and the International Wine Challenge, along with managing the sales and marketing of medium sized Australian wine estates, public relations and writing about wine.

He was part owner of a small shiraz vineyard in McLaren Vale, South Australia that sold grapes to the highly acclaimed wine estate d’Arenberg for some of their top wines and produced a few hundred cases of wine a year.

Special Selection

Having moved back to the UK with his English wife, Henry spent 18 months looking for a suitable site for a wine shop with parking and in the right location, all the while coveting the Threshers site in Tankerton which was perfect. So when Threshers went into administration he jumped at the opportunity.

Prior to opening the wine room in Tankerton near Whitstable Henry spent a year literally tasting hundreds of wines in order to put together an exciting selection which includes the classic regions and grape varieties as well as plenty of surprises that should appeal.

Most of the wines are only available in restaurants and are only chosen if they over deliver in terms of quality for the price.
